Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas is proud to announce our new Audre Rapoport Planned Parenthood Health Center now serving patients in Waco. This state-of-the-art 9,000 sq. ft. health center replaces the Ross Avenue location that served Wacoans for more than 50 years.
Since 1939, Planned Parenthood has provided trusted healthcare and education in the Waco community. We are proud to continue this legacy for the next generation of Texans—join us!
To date, $3.4 million of a $4.3 million goal has been raised during a private phase with half of the contributions from Waco donors, including the Bernard & Audre Rapoport Foundation, the Cooper Foundation, and more than 50 Waco families and counting.
Please make your donation today to ensure that the next generation of Waco can count on Planned Parenthood.

*As of September 1, 2021, a new Texas abortion restriction law (SB 8) is in effect that limits our ability to provide abortions at our health centers. Visit ppgreatertx.org/SB8 for the latest updates on this law and the current impact to patient services.
The Audre Rapoport Planned Parenthood Health Center provides health education to Waco area youth to prevent unintended teen pregnancies and provide the skills and support young people need to make well-informed and positive decisions about their health.
Planned Parenthood offers workshops designed to help parents talk to their teens and pre-teens. Young people who talk with their parents about sex are more likely to postpone having sex and to make healthier decisions about sexual behavior. It is not “the talk”—it is a conversation. We’ll help get your conversations started.
Our health education programs are interactive, medically accurate, age-appropriate and offered at no cost as a community resource to nonprofits, agencies and community partners. To learn more, call (254) 492-1779 or email: [email protected]
